has more than 100,000 names supporting it. nick valencia is here to talk more about this. what's going on? how many people actually want to secede? >> there are tens of thousands of americans upset with the status quo, and they want to secede. even though texas has 100,000 signatures on this petition, it's still only a very small fraction of their percentage. less than 1% of the state's population. yes, there are people out there that are upset, wanted to be their own sovereign nation. seven states have reached the 25,000 signature threshold that warrants response officially from the white house, whether or not that response is what they want to hear, that's another question, but so far seven states, including north carolina, alabama, florida, tennessee, you see them there on the map. most of the states, red states that went for governor mitt romney. so far seven of the states warranting a response from the white house. >> so a lot of unhappy people. you spoke with a member of the texas nationalist movement. i mean, how serious are they about this? what is their complaint.
